Logan Regional Foodservice Management project: Deep-fat fryer
Alessa Wade, Tanille SmithSlide2
BUSINESS CASE: Removal of all fryers would eliminate deep fat fried products and increase availability of healthy options, and promote a healthier image.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Kaiser Permanente announced a new program committed to a healthier America. The project suggests that within one year hospitals offer meals that meet certain nutritional standards and cost the same or less as other meal options. The organizations aim is to broadly increase healthier choices as a way to address obesity. One of the six steps is to removed all fryers and deep fat fried products.
ANALYSIS / ROOT CAUSE: Hospitals promote health, and should portray an image of health. When selling deep fat fried foods the image is not aligned with their goals and objectives. Because of obesity in America, it is suggest that hospitals set a standard for healthy eating for other organizations to emulate.
CURRENT CONDITION: At Logan Regional Hospital’s cafeteria right now, on average deep fat fried food is 5% of daily revenue. Current perception is positive as long as there is still access to the same products.
TARGET CONDITION: Our goal is to create healthier food options while maintaining revenue.
RECOMMENDATION / COUNTERMEASURES: We propose the removal of the double fryer from the cafeteria cook-line and the procurement of a conveyor belt oven to replace the fryer in order to deep fat fried products from circulation but sustained revenue. The same products will be available to people through a healthier cooking method.
ACTION PLANS: To implement this we suggest that
LRH’s foodservice director remove deep fat fryer from cafeteria line and replace with conveyor oven. We recommend that in the place of the deep fat fryer a custom fabricated stainless steel table, and the heating element moved to this table. In the space allotted to the heating element currently the oven would be placed. Month prior to completion a cafeteria campaign would be suggested to promote healthier options and ensure customers their products are still available, only prepared differently. Total removal of fryer and insertion of purchased oven and table would be completed within one year’s time.
FOLLOW UP: To follow up a customer satisfaction survey would be administered. An analysis of revenue comparing 1 month and 5 months after transition to compare grill sales.
